In embracing our 2019-20 season, titled CommUNITY, we decided it would be fantastic to have unique, original, locally-created artwork for all of our promotional materials. We'd like to thank Nancy Thorson and Marie App for creating amazing music-themed, mixed media collages for the "Collage Ensemble" exhibit held at the Scarabocchio Museum in October and November and for our season artwork.

Have you ever wondered why there are red ribbons ?adorning the chairs of some of our orchestra members at every concert? While the ribbons are lovely on stage, they represent much more than decoration. The chairs with ribbons are the players???? who have been sponsored by a community member who loves the orchestra and our musicians! The ribbons are embroidered locally by Bev's Floral and contain the name of both the CWSO musician and their sponsor. Would you like to support a musician? in the CWSO? Would you like a beautiful red ribbon? with your name embroidered on it adorning the chair of one of our musicians at every concert for the 2019-20 season? Call us today at (715)345-7726 and ask us how you can join the Red Sash Club!?
